So hard to believe that last week I was flying home from Seattle! During the 2nd leg of our flight to Seattle I started a hat for Diva. I picked up these lovely cakes from Mass Ave Knits to make this hat. I cast on the hat the moment I got settled on the plane. Before the plane even backed out from the gate I had a good amount knit. We were delayed due to weather, de-icing the plane was taking time.
Once we finally got queued for take off it seemed to take forever. The captain informed us a plane behind us had a medical emergency. A passenger had a heart attack. Oh no! We had to get out of the way to allow that plane to travel back to the terminal. It was not a good travel day for many going through Chicago.
By the time we were wheels up I had 3″ of ribbing completed! I started the cabling, but my row mate was spread a little too much into my space, so it was dueling elbows! And then his leg spread into my leg room. Grr. I finally gave up and just played games on my phone for the remainder of the trip.
While we were in Seattle I finished the hat. Once home I auditioned Poofs for the hat, I think they are so classy. Husbter had picked up some Poofs for me, so I asked Diva what color she wanted. White was the answer. I struggle to add Poofs because they have that stretchy loop on them. I ended up using sewing thread to tack down the loop as best I could. Does anyone have a suggestion for a better way?
Ta-Da! Miss Cable loves Poofs more than Pom Poms
Here’s a link to make the Poofs! Thanks Nothing But Knit!
Friday was a Guild workshop with Heather Givens of Crimson Tate here in Indy. She is a DELIGHT!!! This is our 2nd class with her and we would probably have her each month if we could! She taught her Succulent Garden quilt this time. Here are some photos of the wonderful blocks being created!
The reds on the right really stole the show. Diane is owner of a darling online boutique where she sells her creations.
